Honestly, I do have some good, thick, though-provoking posts in the works. I promise!! But I can't seem to find the time to perfect them and finish them and post them.... Someday....
So in the meantime, here are a few things that make me smile....that make my life more than just okay....that I am grateful for....
First and foremost....my amazingly BIG God and the way He is always, always working for good in my life; His amazing plan of salvation that included choosing me before the world was made. As you start to scratch the surface of realizing how big God is, it is unfathomably humbling. But also unfathomably joy-bringing and comforting!
MY Ariat boots...
Need I say more?
Books!! I'm a bit of a book-worm...and especially classics.
This awesome (and rather deadly looking!) gang are our adopted brothers. Sadly, our family consists only of 3 girls, so we have made up for our lack of biological brothers with brothers-in-Christ. These amazing guys do our hard work for us.
Need a stack of 94 bales of hay moved? Call the boys.
Need a tree cut down and loaded up in the dump trailer? Call the boys.
Need some fun and laughter? DEFINITELY call the boys :D
Although...I'm looking to upgrade....*sigh*
Fun and silly times in the car with Jessie on road trips!
Beautiful clouds and country roads on hot days!
Arizona Green Tea
Amazing stuff.....going down to our General Store and drinking one of these on the front porch....aaahhh....
Big or small, I love horses. Right now, God has us in a place where we only have minis, but I would pay money to ride again. But I'm super grateful for these little ones, and they bring lots and lots of smiles!!
If you know me at all, you will know that I am the "flip-flop queen!" Next to boots or barefoot, flip-flops are it. A bit of a passion, you might say.
Baby horses...'nough said.
No, this is not my piano...I wish!
Fun times with friends at the lake!! (and the knowledge that there's a rumor we may be going to said lake for my 19th bday in a few weeks) *smothered scream of delight*
I so look forward to being a mom someday...if only for the joy of getting to witness hilarious little kids all day long! But for so many other reasons, too.
When we're at church, all the little girls think us "big girls" are pretty cool, so after the sermon, we get swamped with little girls. I love when they just sit on your lap and hold your hand...ahhh...those little fingers just amaze me. And little toes?!?! Such a miracle.
And the things they say.....
And the way they think....
Yep. Definitely can't wait to be a mommy if it's God's will! (PLEASE, God?!?!?)
My awesome friend, Savannah! Our two families were friends years ago (like 12 years ago!) and we just met each other again face-to-face last year. She is such a blessing to me!!!
I could read Patrick Henry all day long....
Getting an i-pad and discovering the hilariousness of distorted pictures. (yes, that is me and Jessie)
My sisters!!! We have such awesome times together....some pretty rough and bumpy times, too...but I wouldn't trade 'em for the world.
What are some extra special things in your life??
